, as joy-ann said, this machiavellian game, basically let's get kerry in this position and then scott brown could take over his seat, run for that seat in massachusetts, we get scott brownbach in? >> this is a little delicate because i know so many people involved. this is what i'll tell you from what i have heard. i have heard senator kerry stands ready to serve and is interested. i have heard from people close to white house that president obama strongly believes in susan rice and is leaning towards selecting her. i think he'd be happy with either of them because they're such strong foreign policy people. but what i've heard at this point in time subject to change is they are serious absusan rice. there isn't a big head fake here at this point. >> chip, to ari's point about the fact that rice is at a deficit going after ambassador rice on such an attack, such shaky ground, is it completely irrational what they're doing with ayotte and graham and mccain coming out to talk about the fact that they're meeting with ambassador rice leaves them scratching their heads and with more questions? of
went out with a group of men who had given up their sunday, their cleveland browns game to go out and try to find some more votes for romney but the belief is that there are fewer than 2% in the final weekend before election day in ohio who had yet to make up their mind. one moment struck me in one suburb and neighborhood and there was a gentleman taking the groceries out of his car, his name was russ and the volunteers approached him and he said i haven't decided but i have enough material. i've been contacted by both campaigns. they left the driveway then i asked them where are you leaning? and he told me i'm leaning president obama. and it was interesting because he would fit the demographic we've seen romney doing better among white men, blue collar in some of these states, he's an electrician, a father but said he was leaning obama one word, bain and as you know the obama campaign really hammered mitt romney particularly in the state of ohio for months even before the debate on bain capital. this is a man who fit into a demographic with better numbers for romney across the bo

, travis brown. all right, travis, i say this is a clear choice. he's not hearing me, you can tell. when a man has his head bow, he's not in prayer, he doesn't hear me introducing him. he does now, do you hear me. >> we had the wrong shot, showing the wrong person, you heard me. look, i say that this election is a very clear choice, america has exceptional and unique, versus america like europe. what kind of america do you want, travis brown? >> well, there's no doubt the america that i want and many people that are responsible for our job growth, our economic vitality want an exceptional america, there's no doubt that we know policies that work versus those that do not and i think the reason you're seeing such a large base election today, tonight, tomorrow, through tomorrow night is because americans want to return to an exceptional america. stuart: now, i know what the polls are saying, but i'm going to ask all of our guests on the program, each and every one of them. i want you to call the election, not who you want to win, but tell me and our viewers, who do you think wins tomorrow?
many black and brown people, and so many white voters, by the way, don't vote for the republican party. >> yeah, i think that was well said. i think a lot of white people are turned off by this old style stuff. joanie, my question to you, my dear friend, how do you explain romney, who left the stage with such grace on election night, i'll tribute to that forever the way he did it, now going back over this again saying they bought the minority vote. this is the kind of thing he was saying during the campaign, remember. he was saying, they get rid of work requirement for welfare because he had to pay off his base. the feeding of the base. it's a theme he's still pushing. >> why does he say it, chris? because he really believes it. they really believe this is what it's all about and we've all been paid off. as cynthia says, i'm still waiting for my gifts, too. the thing that irks me to hear the two people from wisconsin speak so dismisses ively about their own population and own state -- i mean, paul ryan lost his own district, his city, his hometown, which is not a particularly urban pla
high. steve brown is live in chicago o'hare international airport. traditionally the busiest airport around thanksgiving. we say it's the busiest, steve, it was slow going this morning. >> it was. the airline industry has slimed down so much. eliminated so many flights that a single weather event can cause all sorts of havoc in a single day. that's what we have this morning. we had fog this morning at two airports. two pivot toll ones. chicago o'hare and chicago midway. the translation was throughout the region, it turned into a long, difficult day. >> it was very frustrating it was a long drive over here from cedar rapids. you know, and we got a phone call that the flight was, you know, we called and they said all the flights were on and to come here and realize the flights are all cancelled we have to fly out tomorrow. we will try to make the most of it. >> now, we have seen a lot of flights come in later. one of the worst exramples examples we saw and unfortunately this american airlines flight supposed to come from richmond to chicago o'hare land at just about 1:00 it's scheduled
that the presidential candidates visited ohio this year. and steve brown is live in columbus. the president is a proponent of early voting. >> as of friday 1.6 million oh ohioans one in five registered voters in the buckeye state. early voting continued throughout weekend and that number is this going to grow and in franklin county which includes the city of columbus, folks trying to early vote today were in for a pretty long wait. >> i wanted to try to beat the lines, but we couldn't, but we're in another line here. >> you didn't expect this. no, i didn't. pretty crazy. >> i've been waiting for probably about 45 minutes so not too long. >> reporter: and paper absentee ballots are pouring in and will continue to do so. the number of early votes may reach as much as 2 million when it's said and done, shep and this favors the obama campaign, something that both sides agree on. >> shepard: shep, how is the romney camp drivers supporters to the poll? >> well, there's the efforts that the campaign itself is undergoing, but we found out a lot of stuff going on in the state of ohio that's kind of
. says john kerry and state put scott brown in the senate. just a thought. >> what? >> doesn't necessarily put him in the senate but he would probably run for that seat. >> we were making this point on the show yesterday and some listeners agreed with john fuglesang who said if john kerry is not in the senate anymore scott brown will run for that seat. >> he'll run for it but that doesn't mean that scott brown necessarily wins. barney frank could win. well, all right. i see the point. let's get a couple more callers. patty from seattle. you're on the "bill press show." good morning. hello, patty. all right. >> no patty from seattle. >> charles from tampa, florida. charles, good morning. you're on the "bill press show" we hope. >> caller: good morning. how you doing today? >> good. good to hear your voice. >> great to hear yours. on the benghazi thing with the c.i.a. and them doing the investigation. if it was a republican in office you guys would be harping all over it. what we need to find out is why
was there today. and our steve brown is there as well live in columbus with more on this enormous battleground. what's the mood, steve? >> well, the polls have closed but voting continues. it is a situation around the ohio state university campus that we're aware of now that if you are in line as the polls close you still get a chance to vote. they will let whoever was in the line part of the 7:30 vote. we started receiving reports that there was a line of over 700 nero -- near ohio state university and one person said it is more like 200. the governor said he was on his way out there to keep folks entertained and keep them company to keep them in line. in this state there is no such thing as extra votes. karl alluded to this a few minutes ago there will be an earlier indicator how this state goes. folks who were veteran political watchers in the state say about 45 minutes in, about 8:15 because the early votes are the ones that get counted and because the obama campaign has made it so central to the campaign strategy that should give them an idea how many votes or what size of a lead the ear
anybody who was brown or black. bemis practically anybody who believes that immigration is an issue that needs to be tackled. you had a case here where the republican party right now is stampeding toward irrelevance. if they do not catch up with everything in the national journal, there is changing demographics. you cannot have a ruling coalition that is virtually all white. you had president obama yesterday put together this new ascendant coalition, put it back together from 2008 and enough of the democratic coalition so you have this combination of hispanics, more than 70% of hispanics, young voters, people who both want to twice as a democrat. they're likely to remain a dealt crack -- democrat. republicans, what they're missing is the idea of trying to expand their percentage of a shrinking electorate. like it or not, this is becoming a majority minority nation and the republican party, this is the last time republicans will have a chance at winning the presidency with this kind of electoral strategy. >> let's talk about why this happened. some of it was issues, some of it was th
that they want scott brown back in the senate. they don't want susan rice to be secretary of state. you know what they want to be secretary of state? john kerry. and we know that you know, this is from anastacia who writes this. these two men are trying to get scott brown back in the senate and trashing susan rice to get kerry as secretary of state. i could not agree more, ans at a sha. the liberals are all afraid if you make john kerry john kerry secretary of state scott brown he's sitting there in his truck in massachusetts, he's got a big fund raising apparatus he's ready to campaign. he has the ground organization ready. and he will just try to snatch up john kerry's seat. you know what? the folks in massachusetts might go ahead and vote for him just to watch him and elizabeth warren have to be colleagues together after their ugly campaign. voters have done much sillier things. i was in california when austrian weightlifter got to be governor. i think that's a really good point. i think you're seeing them doing
, please. >> i am wondering what impact you think a link-up moderate senators, such as brown, lugar, college are going to have on the negotiation? >> we have been waiting for some time, including actor for example senators snowe and lugar announced they were retiring, for change, and has not been there. they continued along the path in following the leadership of senator mcconnell. whether it changes now is an open question. i suspect it will a little bit, and it may well for senator brown, depending on when we get an announcement or if there is an announcement that john kerry going to be named secretary of state, in which case there will be a special election down the road for that senate seat, and you will see scott brown become the great conciliator as he prepares for the election. for others, they will continue to take their clothes from what the leaders say or what the members do. there the question is whether mcconnell basically becomes at least five things a more passive actor and lets lamar alexander and bob corker and tom coburn take the lead and doing something that he wil
. think about the moderate republicans that ran on tuesday in blue states. think of scott brown, the former governor in hawaii, heather wilson in new mexico. they could not win because of their party's brand. heidi won. joe donnelly won. this is a one size brand contaminates all other candidates, even the ones that have no ability whatsoever in some of the exotic party. yeah, we are going to hear a bunch of people with iq's lower than room temperature say that mitt romney lost because he was not conservative enough. but i think after republicans go through their seven stages of grief, they can get to a point where they can make some changes if they will be a party for the future. >> thank you, charlie. we enjoy being here. we're trying to say something that is interesting and thoughtful and novel hours after the polls close. i hope i come close to what he said. i really wanted to come out here. i really wanted to come out here and say -- i just heard what charlie said. there is not one thing i agree with. he is absolutely wrong about everything. i never say that. we always agree
. >> okay, we're going to go now to massachusetts where scott brown, senator scott brown is speaking to supporters. >> [inaudible] [cheers and applause] >> [inaudible] [cheers and applause] >> i want to thank my mom, i want to thank my mom -- [cheers and applause] [inaudible] >> i'm not sure what's going to happen, but -- [inaudible] [cheers and applause] [laughter] [cheers and applause] >> concession speech, one of the most competitive seats in the country, millions of dollars on both sides. i think scott brown ran a good race. sometimes you raise the money, you run a good race, you draw a good opponent, and you happen to represent a state that's not very hospitable to your party, and you lose. >> that's right. scott brown is going to be the senator with the highest approval rating ever to be defeated in modern memory. his approval rating is in the 60s, and yet he's losing. and that's because he won in a special election where massachusetts, which in 2004 was the most democratic state in the nation, john kerry got more votes there, a higher percentage of the votes there than he did
donnell and scott brown won, and then they swept the midterms. they thought, you know what? opposing barack obama, being against everything he's for is enough. well, last night it wasn't near enough. they lost a lot of senate races for the same reason. and now the soul searching and the circular firing squad really commences. chris christie will get a lot of blame. so will mitt romney. but the lack of leaders and ideas and mechanics of how to win elections, it's going to be ugly. and people like chris christie are going to have to deflect some of the incoming, but they're also going to have to step forward and say what kind of party are we going to be? how are we going to compete in states like -- forget losing the battleground counties for a minute in the battleground states. what about california? if part of you can't get 45% of the vote, much above 40% of the vote in california is not a party about the future. >> and blaming chris christie is exactly maybe what's wrong with the party. you tell me. he should step above it. but can he? >> i think there are a lot of republicans that need to fight
